You won’t have to worry about missing anything. Every new edition of the newsletter goes directly to your inbox.

You will start receiving What’s Up Newp newsletters right here in your inbox as soon as tomorrow morning.

What’s Up Newp is an award-winning, locally owned, independent online newsroom that covers Newport, Rhode Island, and beyond.

What’s Up Newp launched on March 12, 2012, and we take great pride that it’s become the place thousands of people turn to every day to find out what’s happening, new, and to do out there.

I’m Ryan Belmore, Owner & Publisher of What’s Up Newp. I’m a life-long (and proud) Rhode Islander.

While you’ll hear from me a bunch, you’ll also read stories from our dozen contributors regularly.

What’s Up Newp newsletters are here to serve as a conversation between neighbors, so don't be shy to tell me what you'd like to see in future newsletters or on our website, whatsupnewp.com.
